Woman Found in Burning SUV in UCSD Parking Lot

According to San Diego Police Lt. Kevin Rooney, several people made 9-1-1 calls around 9:20 p.m. to report the burning vehicle.

Firefighters put out the fire and found a body of the woman inside. Helicopters were used to search for possible suspects and evidence in the surrounding area. As a result of the investigation, the parking lot was blocked off and individuals who parked their vehicles in the lot were not able to retrieve them until the next day.

“We have not identified the woman yet,” Rooney said. “We don’t know what her cause of death is either.”

An autopsy is scheduled for the morning of Nov. 1. No additional details have been released yet.

The San Diego Police Department Homicide Unit is the lead reporting and investigating agency for the case, with assistance from the UCSD Police Department. Anyone with information is asked to call (619) 531-2293.
